Baby Shower for Maggie Next Saturday...

Please join us next Saturday, September 15th for a baby shower for a very special little girl. Maggie is the newest member of the Oatsvall family. Their blog is 'The Oatsvall Team'. Please take some time to visit their blog and read Maggie's story.

I been asked several times to release Gwen's wish list for Maggie and so today I am unveiling it.

Maggie's head was badly burned while in foster care in China. Two mother's have volunteered to have their daughter's hair cut for Locks of Love to make a wig for Maggie. That is just one of the most beautiful gifts I have ever heard of. I don't know how many hair donations would be needed to make a wig, but if any of you Mom's would be willing, I think that would be incredible.

Please e-mail me if you would like to have Gwen's wish list. My e-mail address is timnkim@gmail.com, I'm doing it this way so that she doesn't receive duplicates of the same gifts. If you plan to purchase something from the list, let me know and I will remove your list item.

Gwen is also putting together a box of needed items to leave behind at Maggie's orphanage. Please keep the orphans in mind and feel free to include one of the items below or one of your choice to be sent to the orphanage and include it clearly labeled with your gift for Maggie.

blankets
socks
wash clothes


If anyone would like to support the shower on their blog, it would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to add the sidebar graphic or do a post. Thank you so much~

I have looked into the Locks of Love. My sister has given to them before and recommended it for Maggie. If I remember correctly the length of the hair donated has to be between 6 to 10 inches. It cannot be bleached. I am wanting to donate some of Hannah's once it grows out alittle more.
